Hare-raising Art!


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The Wednesday afternoon art class created some wonderful rabbit images this spring.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The first step was to create the background as the girls added stripes of various tints to their images.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

While waiting for the background to dry, students drew their rabbits with pencil using basic shapes  and then outlined with a marker.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It was a lot of fun creating the rabbit and exaggerating many different features on the drawing.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The next step was to cut out the rabbit.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The final step was to put together the image and the background by gluing them.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone had fun and enjoyed their creation!

Family Art Day

Butterflies returned to the Art Junction today.

DSCN7603

Families came to the Art Junction on Saturday, March 23, 2013 to participate in creating clay butterflies and to help celebrate the return of spring.

Our weather was still very winter-like, but our thoughts turned to spring and the renewal that will return to north-central Ohio soon.

DSCN7601

Families worked together to create butterflies from air-dry clay.

DSCN7609

Everyone had the opportunity to add paint to their creation as well.

Crayola® Air-Dry Clay is a natural earth clay which air-dries to a hard solid. It can be used it to make clay sculptures, decorative items or plaques. No baking or firing needed. Easy clean-up. Minimal shrinkage.

You can use most traditional clay sculpting techniques with Air-Dry Clay, such as coil, slab, pinch, score-and-weld.

DSCN7616 You can also press beads, small stones or other decorative items directly into the clay.DSCN7615

A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect which includes moths.

DSCN7612

Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight.  Some, like the Monarch, will migrate over long distances. A few butterflies eat harmful insects. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.

Everyone enjoyed the creative process of making a butterfly today.
